I just stopped at the Verizon store adjacent to my hotel in Seattle and grabbed a USB720 EVDO modem modem to use with my MacBook Pro for our presentation events. So far, I’m underwhelmed. I used the DSL Reports speed tester and got 331 down/169 up on the MacBook Pro, followed by a second test of 235 down/33 up. By way of comparison, my Vista machine got 1019 down/249 up on the hotel Internet connection. I’ll test the speed of the built-in EvDO modem on the Thinkpad later.
